LA CROSSE, Wis. – The Viterbo University music department will host its second Opera Performance Workshop Tuesday, Aug. 7–Saturday, Aug. 11 in the Fine Arts Center. A free public performance of various opera scenes will be held at 3 p.m. Saturday, Aug. 11 in the Viterbo Fine Arts Center Recital Hall.

Workshop participants are high school juniors and seniors and university undergraduates.  Participants have been practicing their music at home over the summer in preparation for the workshop, which will focus on staging of the scenes selected, acting and movement, and vocal coaching. Scenes for this year’s workshop come from works including The Magic Flute, The Merry Widow, and Hansel and Gretel.

“The Opera Performance Workshop is created for young singers to explore performance practices in the opera genre in a true learning environment,” said Dan Johnson-Wilmot, Viterbo faculty member and director of the workshop. “Singers who are interested in a vocal performance career will find this workshop to be a great asset in their operatic training.”

Viterbo faculty members teaching the workshop include Johnson-Wilmot, Ann Schoenecker, David Richardson, and Nancy Allen. Brent Wilson, a Los Angeles based tenor and avid soloist who specializes in operatic character repertoire, will also participate.
